There are still at least three more months before to purported launch of the iPhone 8. Apple is expected to unveil its much rumored tenth anniversary phone sometime in September. While its suppliers and contractors are busy building the next iPhone, some components inevitably find their way on the Internet.
The first image is coming from leaks aggregator Slashleaks. According to the person who posted the image, the leak pertains to the metal or steel frame for the iPhone 8. In one of the images, one can see the metal frames being compared to an iPhone 6 case.
Furthermore, it seems that these frames are in early stage of fabrication. While the majority of materials have been removed from it, it is still a long way from becoming a finished iPhone 8 frame.
On other news, a few other components for the iPhone 8 surfaced recently. These components pertain to the front and back glass panels of the upcoming phone. Along with these, there were also glass panels for the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus in the said leak.
From one of the images, the the rear panel of the iPhone 8 does not show any visible opening for the Touch ID sensor. This strengthens earlier rumors that the phone will indeed come with an embedded fingerprint sensor. This is quite a pleasant news especially for hardcore Apple fans. Especially now that rumors are abound claiming Samsung is still having issues with its in-display fingerprint sensor on the Galaxy Note 8.
Readers should note that these images did not come from Apple itself. Instead, these are images from people ho has connections with the Chinese supply chain that is also linked to Apple. Discretion is highly advised.
The iPhone 8 is expected to be unveiled along with the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus. However, there are claims that it might not get the same release date due to manufacturing delays. Instead, consumers can expect the phone to hit stores sometime in October or November. For more updates on the iPhone 8, be sure to check us out at TheBitbag.
